Philosophy has historically played a central role in the intellectual formation of students, in providing powerful resources for elaborating and defending the Christian faith, and preparing students to integrate faith and reason. Housed within the Politics, Philosophy and Economics program, The King’s College Philosophy major builds on the role that philosophy already plays in the College’s PPE-centered Common Core.
The Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy degree from King’s provides outstanding preparation for students who wish to pursue any number of postgraduate degrees, including law school. It also develops strong critical thinking and evaluative skills that are in high demand in the job market.
New York City is home to several major universities that support some of the most prestigious philosophy programs in the world, providing excellent opportunities for engagement with the resources of a dynamic local philosophical community. As a result, students and faculty in Philosophy at The King’s College are well positioned to contribute to and gain from that milieu while representing the truths of Christianity and a biblical worldview.
